NEW YORK — Mixed media artist Barbara Bachner is going back to her roots.

She will showcase her latest body of work at the Laboratory Institute of Merchandising, the New York college geared to the business of fashion that Bachner attended in the Fifties. “Dream Works — Back To Her Roots” opens its three-week run Oct. 21 and will help inaugurate the school’s newly renovated wing at its East 54th Street campus.

Eric Feigenbaum, LIM’s Visual Merchandising department chair, is curating the exhibition and invited his students to interpret Bachner’s work, which is largely based on the artist’s dreams. The student creations will be mounted on an abstract, three-dimensional body form and displayed alongside the rest of the exhibition.

In other LIM news, the college recently established its Transfer Grant, which will be awarded to students who have graduated from a two-year college and want to earn a bachelor’s degree at LIM. The college will award $1,500 per semester to full-time students who are candidates for bachelor’s degrees at the college. Unlike other LIM grants, however, the Transfer Grant is not reserved for students with a specific grade point average.

“Our motivation was to lessen the burden of tuition for students who would otherwise have a difficult time making full tuition payments,” said LIM president Elizabeth Marcuse. “The grant is open to all qualified students who wish to continue their fashion business education.”

The new grant will be awarded to students beginning with the spring semester.
